Funny things that happen on the job

Many of you know that I'm the editor here at ChickAdvisor.  As such, I get a lot of pitches for article topics or new products on the market.

In this last week I've been receiving quite a few last minute Valentine ideas.  And that's great!  I can forward a whole bunch of them to my hubby :)

But what's really cracking me up right now is that many of these emails come with abbreviated subject lines.  So instead of saying "Last minute ideas for Valentine's Day", many of them are using "Last minute ideas for VD".

I'm not that old, but I remember when VD was an abbreviation for something else altogether.  Some of you know exactly what I mean ;)  Quite ironic, actually!

So, what funny thing happened to you on the job today?

Well if one's not careful, one can get VD on VD ... hehe .. too corny? :)

I'm a cheap laugh, so not sure if you'll find funny what I think is funny, but here's just a few:

Funny names where I work:
Bill Ding (building)
Ken Ip (can i pee)

I once accidentally called the guy "hey you're can i pee right?? I mean ken eep??" lol

Apparently, the show Vampire Diaries has been criticized for its ads on billboards in NYC. Said billboards only had "Catch VD" in red fonts against a black background.

@becky: that's so funny!! There's a lady at my work whose userid for her Windows login is AHole.

speaking of user ids, there's one very nice lady at my workplace and her userid, when read/pronounced out loud sounds like "the brown ho"

I have a coworker who sleeps at work. no joke. he sits at his desk, his head lolls all over the place and he snores the house down! It's become a standing joke, our manager, directory and even our VP comes around and pretends to tip toe around him so as not to wake his sleep. He's a very cool guy and extremely smart, but that's his vice ..ah well ..makes for some good laughs :)
